Nova Poshta is building its second largest terminal in Odessa for sorting parcels

Nova Poshta Group plans to invest UAH 5 billion in development in 2022, of which UAH 1.2 billion into an innovative terminal in Odessa.

Construction work at the Odessa terminal began in June 2021. As Nova Poshta reported, the terminal in Odessa will become the company’s second largest sorting facility after its opening. The terminal will consist of two buildings: postal and freight, their total area – more than 26,000 square meters.

Active construction is currently underway: a building frame is being assembled at the cargo terminal.

In 2022, we plan to invest unprecedented UAH 5 billion in the Nova Poshta development: in terminal infrastructure; a network of branches and post offices; in innovation. This is one and a half times more than last year. We believe in our country, we believe in its people, so we continue to develop our business and work with inspiration.

In March 2022, the installation of automated equipment will begin at the terminal. These will be two main automated Vanderlande lines for sorting parcels from 2 kg to 30 kg and three lines for sorting small parcels manufactured by the Ukrainian company Konsort.

In addition, telescopic conveyors will be installed at the terminal, which drive directly into the car body and help automate the process of loading. A total of 48 such “telescopes” are planned to be installed at the terminal. It is planned to use 50 robotic carts at the cargo part of the terminal: robots manufactured by Ukrainian SBR for moving cargo.

The terminal will begin operation, tentatively, already in November of this year. It will be able to process up to 40,000 parcels per hour, which is three times more the speed of the current terminal. The terminal will sort the parcels for Odessa and 65 settlements of Odessa region. It will create more than 700 new jobs.
